Want to know where to find quality turmeric powder?You should be able to find quality turmeric powder at your local health food store or Indian/Asian supermarket as well. You're looking for the Curcuma longa variety. You just want pure 100% turmeric. Turmeric is available online through Amazon as well. In South Africa, look for 'therapeutic' grade turmeric, which is guaranteed not to have any fillers. In other countries, there is only one grade, which is suitable for everyone.
Over the years we have discovered through our own research and after hundreds of thousands of reviews in the Turmeric User Group, these are our most trusted suppliers who have maintained the best standards and quality. None of these businesses pay for any position here, it's all based on reviews of their services and can change. Please let us know your thoughts.
What about fresh raw turmeric? It is possible to make Golden Paste with raw turmeric, but it is less convenient and a lot messier. You would need to adjust the amount of both turmeric and water to compensate for the extra bulk and the extra moisture in the raw rhizome. Your best bet is to use a good quality turmeric powder, which you can find from any of the suppliers in these lists.
We do not recommend using cheap turmeric, discounted brands, or pills/capsules/supplements/extracts, etc.
